Spilled liquid on my canon powershot sd780is


Hi I really need someone to help me because I spilled a liquid on my camera and it won’t turn on I went to a camera repair store and they told me cannon doesn’t sell parts to my cam anymore and I should talk to canon to see if I can send in my camera and get a new one and pay the difference they said it happens in some cases and I REALLY hope it’s my case because I love this camera so dearly so if a representative can plzzz reply to me I’d appreciate it sooo sooo sooo much<3



You need to call Canon, but I would not hope for much.


Your camera was released in 2009 and is well out of service life.  I expect there is little hope of getting anyone to repair it after 15 years.
As regards a trade-in, my understanding is that this applies to only working cameras, and thus your unit would not qualify.

Cameras have come a long, long way from the model you have, and if you decide to get a new unit you will find it vastly outperforms what you are used to.  Have a look at this site and check out what is available.

Afraid its time for a new camera, as finding parts for a camera this old will be difficult or impossible.

Canon does have an upgrade program.  It provides a small discount and free shipping for a new camera.  This is the avenue I would pursue.
